Lots of Volunteers and Less Garbage = Johnson Creek Success


One hundred forty community volunteers came together on August 24th to take part in the Johnson Creek Watershed Council Creek Clean up.

Working in 15 stream segments, from the mouth of the river to upstream of SE 92nd, crews removed about 3 tons of trash (less than last year). Large items like shopping carts and tires were not seen as prevalent this year either. All of this is great news for Johnson Creek!

Congrats to the volunteers and the folks at the Johnson Creek Watershed Council for another successful project to improve this urban watershed!
